Why is My Tongue Tingling

Claire Sessions of Medical News Today gives us some updated information on Tingling tongue.
The medical name for a pins and needles sensation is parasthesia. It can affect all parts of the body, including the tongue.

In this article, we look at the most common reasons for a tingling tongue, and explore more unusual causes, such as migraine and stroke.

Overview

Tongue tingling in person with their tongue sticking out.

Tingling or numbness in the tongue can be caused by a number of different conditions.

A tingling, numb, or pins and needles feeling is usually due to a loss of sensation from pressure or damage to the nerves.
